  • Matt Calvert: Announces retirement

    Calvert (undisclosed) will hang up his skates after 11 NHL seasons due to lingering injury concerns.

    Calvert played in 566 games for the Blue Jackets and Avalanche over the course of his career in which he tallied 95 goals, 108 assists and 376 PIM while averaging 14:07 of ice time. The 31-year-old winger was limited to just 18 games this past year due to his undisclosed injuries. Without Calvert around, the Avs will turn to youngsters like Alex Newhook and Kiefer Sherwood to bolster their forward depth.

  • Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Undergoes surgery

    Calvert (undisclosed) recently underwent surgery and isn't expected to be available for the playoffs, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    It's safe to assume Calvert won't return during postseason play, so he'll finish the campaign having picked up three helpers through 18 regular-season contests. The 31-year-old forward will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and it remains to be seen how much interest he'll garner on the open market after an injury-riddled 2020-21 campaign.

  • Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Considered week-to-week

    Calvert is considered week-to-week with an undisclosed injury, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Calvert's absence will test Colorado's depth up front, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up three helpers in 18 games this campaign. It wouldn't be surprising to see the veteran winger surface on injured reserve in the coming days.

    Calvert (upper body) will "probably" skate at Sunday's practice, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Calvert (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Sharks, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Calvert will miss a fourth straight game Wednesday and remains without a definite timetable for his return. Either way, the 31-year-old winger's only tallied one helper in nine games this campaign, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to track his availability.

  • Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Dealing with lower-body issue

    Contrary to an earlier report of an upper-body issue, Calvert is actually dealing a lower-body injury, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    The severity of the injury is still unknown, but considering Calvert was on the injured reserve with an upper-body issue earlier this season, this could be a good sign. Until more information is available, he should still considered questionable for Saturday's rematch with Arizona.

  • Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Nursing upper-body injury

    Calvert is dealing with an upper-body injury that held him out of Friday's game against the Wild, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

    Clearly, there was some sort of miscommunication within the Avalanche organization regarding Calvert's injury. It was originally reported as an upper-body issue before head coach Jared Bednar referred to it as a lower-body injury after Friday's win over Minnesota. Some definitive information should be available after he's further evaluated.

  • Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Won't play Friday

    Calvert (upper body) will not be available for Friday's game against Arizona, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Calvert was a late scratch before Friday's game so the Avalanche will take on the Coyotes with just 11 forwards. The 31-year-old winger missed seven games earlier this season while dealing with an upper-body issue. It's unclear if this is an aggravation of that injury or something unrelated. He'll be questionable for Saturday's rematch with Arizona.
